There are also additional opportunities for boys following their season and competition opportunities available in the new discipline of Freestyle Acrobatics for both boys and girls.

* Fall season Level 4 & 5 gymnasts who did not qualify for state will be automatically entered in the Wildcard Cruise Classic. If you wish to participate in the other AAU meets, reduce payment by $35. We would like to highly encourage gymnasts who didn’t qualify to State to use these meet opportunities to gain more competitive experience.

Meet fees for the 2013 off-season girls’ compulsory meets includes membership in AAU, which is required for gymnasts to compete. The optional level gymnasts are already registered for the Wildcard and AAU District meets. The spring season new Level 2/3s (former Fast Track and Gold Bugs II) are registered for all of these meets in addition to the M&M Meet in January.

Level 3 — $185; Level 4 — $225; Level 5 & 6 — $235

Your level will be determined by your coach, although most gymnasts will compete the level that they competed during the current season.  Registration for these off-season competitions are due by Dec. 20. Final payment may be made by Jan. 15.

Freestyle Acrobatics includes elements of traditional gymnastics, parkour, freerunning, martial arts, breakdancing and more into a safe, developmental program for athletes of all ages.  It’s really simple and lots of fun. We’re hoping to have at least 10 athletes compete at our home meet. There are one or two other clubs planning to come to the Freestyle Acrobatics meet.

Per Meet Fee — $25, this does not include the $15 AAU membership fee. This fee is due by Jan. 10.
